My eyes opened in the darkness of mysteries,
The shadows crept as light faded.
The mysteries upon me were awaking.
In my eyes the world was dissolving,
In the distance beyond the mist of nothing
Stood the shadows of dread and fear.
My mind drifted
To the darkness beyond the mist.
My heart was lost but my mind alive.
Beyond the biggest mystery lay,
What was going to happen?
I held myself back then walked in.
There I saw a rainbow flying like a bird,
A fountain of contained beauty,
This was no darkness but the world of my dreams.
